Etsy Treasuries: Totes Amaze

I've always been pretty good at remembering to bring my own bags when I go grocery shopping. With my sister being a marine-life conservation obsessive, and my mum being a responsible recycler & shopper who has always made a habit of keeping bags in her car boot for trips to the supermarket, it's kind of been drummed into me that taking reusable bags to the supermarket = good. Now though, Northern Ireland has a bag fee for every carrier bag given out at shops & supermarkets, and I have realised that when it comes to other shopping trips (clothes, etc) I never have a bag to hand.

But I don't want to go down the shops with some boring old blue Tesco bag for life, obv! Cue Etsy, a treasure (lol, soz) trove of cute & affordable, handmade tote bags that you can easily stuff in your handbag, to produce when parting with your hard earned cash at Topshop (or most likely Primark in my case).

Find these amazing tote bags (all under a tenner!) @ Totes Cute: Etsy Treasury by me!

My top three are the bags above. I love (3) because of its simplicity- I love a geographic print, and the gold & black in this are perfect & would pretty much match everything in my wardrobe. Number (2) ticks all my girly boxes: tea, florals & cute hand drawings. Lastly, and MOST IMPORTANTLY (1) is basically the most amazing thing I have seen in my life. A rabbit singing the lyrics of R Kelly's Ignition (Remix) to woo himself a lady rabbit. And it's only SIX QUID. I am 100% going to buy this when I get paid tomorrow, I must own it for when I make a spontaneous detour after work to buy wine & magazines and find myself in need of a bag. Not that that happens often... cough.


  1. REMIX TO IGNITION!! Dear sweet lord, how did you find this?? Amazing. I think I need to own it too xx

    1. I don't know I think an angel sent it to me x

  2. I love the bags. They all are so soothing and stylish I must say. Actually I had the same bag, but my friend borrowed it without the intention of giving it back. I always prefer to buy Kilkenny cheap orla kiely bags as they come in a variety of colors and designs. I have a separate wardrobe full of orla kiley bags.
